Our Home Repair Program partners with low-income homeowners who need help to maintain and perform necessary repairs on their homes, allowing them to reclaim their homes with pride and dignity.
In keeping with the Habitat principles of payback, sweat equity, and education, our Helping Hands Repair Program empowers homeowners to remain at home for as long as they choose. Eligible families make 80% or less of the area median income, own their own home, and have resided in the home as their primary residence for more than one year. Cost of the repair is calculated on an income-based sliding scale and repaid at 0% interest, making home repair affordable.
On a community level, the repair program helps revitalize the appearance of the neighborhood, strengthen connections within the community and helps preserve affordable housing stock. Repair program services may include exterior painting, weatherization, roof repairs, and accessibility improvements, along with other critical health and safety home repairs.
